6:02 pm
people or plants? well, speaking of tough. a lot of people are finding the economy to be difficult so they are planting vegetable gardens. if you haven't yet, don't panic. what i learned today if you plant tomato plants right now, if we get that big burst of heat then in some cases, allen, these plants can catch up with the plants that were in the ground weeks ago. >> those tomato plants, you get them they are pretty small. those ones behind you a pretty good size. >> reporter: this is like the cheating version, isn't it? >> i am not above cheating. >> reporter: neither am i. >> they would be fine. ann notarangelo out in the elements tonight in pleasant hill. thank you. late season storm really taking its toll on the nerves of wine makers. the heavy rain, cold, now in some cases hail can be devastating to the tender bloom that whether eventually become a great cluster. today the weather is about 20 degrees below normal in the

6:47 pm
widespread in and around the entire bay area. right now if you're in the concord area. leading edge of more precipitation will be heading your way. all this is lifting up in a north and easterly direction. here is the north bay where the most rain is falling at this particular time than when you see the shades of yellow. more moderate to heavy downpour. so far today let's check in and see how much rain has accumulated from 5 a.m. this morning until 5 p.m. just nearly 6/10ths of an inch of rain in santa rosa. 1/100th of an inch at the airport. thought this was really interesting. i compared these numbers with march 24th when we were in the thick of the rain and we are still pretty much even. 123% of normal in santa rosa to 94% in san jose. if you are out and about this evening we still have some scattered showers in the offing. so you will want to carry that umbrella. temperatures across the board are pretty much 50 to 55
6:48 pm
dropping into the upper 40s and low 50s. it looks like we will see a cooler temperature of 43 in santa rosa. so the area of low pressure is pretty much lifting to the north and exiting to the east and behind it a lot of unsettled air mass so therefore some cool and wet conditions as the evening progresses but according to our pinpoint forecast after midnight we will start to see the showers taper off as they filter out in a counter clockwise fashion. partial clearing as the tour rolls through the bay area. tomorrow temperatures respond to that little peek-a-boo sunshine. the extended forecast calling for full on sunshine. dry day. thursday a quite seasonal day. bright and sunny on friday and end up with mostly cloudy skies by night fall. that will lead to cloud cover on saturday. isolated showers in the forecast for sunday. and then clouds stick around on monday and tuesday. that is your pinpoint forecast.
6:49 pm
allen? >> all right. dana just gave an "oh, no" to that other forecast for rain. a battle cry for waivers approved for the bay area. waivers for part of the federal health care law and bay area businesses did follow the rules on applying for them. 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. on cbs5 which businesses receive them. why critics say it is obvious politics was in play. i know it is early but this is good stuff. giants needed a win to stay in first place. i'm dennis o'donnell. and with rain delays all over the place, some people got creative.
6:50 pm
6:51 pm
6:52 pm
n't good enough we are about a quarter way through the baseball season and one pattern is very clear. the giants' offense is not good enough to overcome defensive mistakes and their defense isn't nearly as good as 2010. the giants ranked 26th in the majors with 30 errors. george karl taking in the matinee in denver this afternoon. jonathan sanchez was cruising through seven. jose lopez comebacker. sanchez gets a glove on it. bare hands.
6:53 pm
